Attention Oregon school and public librarians!
For the past 3 years the State Library and Department of Education have provided Oregon Summer Reading Certificates to libraries in Oregon. In the past, I took three or four mock-up certificates to the Spring OLA Children Services Division meeting at which librarians voted to select the one mock-up certificate they wanted to be printed and made available to download. Two things have changed this year: 1) voting will take place via email, allowing both public and school librarians to vote, and 2) this year the State will provide both a children's Make a Splash and a teen Make Waves certificate!

To vote: Please send an email with the subject heading “Oregon Summer Reading Certificate” to Katie Anderson (katie.anderson at state.or.us) by the end of the day April 18, 2010. The body of your email should include the title of one children’s mock-up and one teen mock-up you would like printed and made available this summer.
The winning certificates will be announced the week of April 19- 23, 2010 via an email sent out on the kids-lib, OYAN, and OASL listservs. The announcement email will also include link and URL for online ordering of hard copies of the the certificates. Please start thinking now about how many children's certificates in English and Spanish, and how many teen certificates in English and Spanish you will need so you are prepared when online ordering is available later this month. Remember, these certificates are FREE!
In 2007 the Oregon Department of Education, Oregon State Library, and Oregon Library Association coordinated their efforts to create a joint Oregon Summer Reading Certificate with funding from the Oregon Education Association. The joint certificate has the national Collaborative Summer Library Program artwork on it and is signed by the State Librarian and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. This effort signifies the commitment of schools and libraries to the education of Oregon’s youth.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
